About Carmen Karady

Aloha! My name is Carmen Karady and have lived in Lahaina for fifteen years. I teach yoga at the nearby hotel resorts and senior center. I am an active member of the Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunset. As International chair for our club, I have travelled to Africa, India, Japan and Egypt and Europe.

I have a wonderful partner, Norman Estin, who is a physician in town for Doctors on Call. The terrific news is that I'm a grandmother.

Carmen Karady purchased this condo in 2012

Why Carmen Karady chose Maui

Voted as one of the best beach towns in the USA, this is a great location for tourists and locals alike, and it's getting better all the time because many of the historical sites are being renovated.

One of the advantages of staying in Lahaina is that you don't need a car. Everything is in walking distance--from the Banyan Park to the Harbor. The beach is right outside your backdoor, as well as next door art galleries, museums, churches, restaurants, and shops. The location is incredibly convenient.

What makes this condo unique

Maui is special for many reasons: its rejuvenating qualities are due to the fresh air, sparkling warm ocean, sunshine, and constant year-round ideal temperatures. Not only do the winter birds flock to Maui, but summer birds as well because of the moderate climate. And let's not forget Maui's volcano, Haleakala, 'House of the Rising Sun,' a pilgrimage well worth taking at dawnbreak or sunset when you can simultaneously watch the moon rise and the sun set. Then there are jungles and waterfalls, golf courses galore, and day trips to neighboring islands. So many fun things to do.

One of the most unique benefits of this particular location is direct beach access--just walk out the back gate! Next door is the surfing school where you can rent paddle and surf board; and you can join my yoga classes for free.

Nice sunsets, great location, good value!

  • 4 of 5

We loved being close to all the shops and restaurants in Lahaina and just a 10 min. drive to the nice beaches. Carmen was very nice and responsive and made sure our room was ready early and also checked in with us on the day we arrived. We enjoyed the sunsets every night. The condo was clean. The upgraded granite counters were nice. We liked all the extra amenities: kitchen, pool toys, picnic basket, cooler, and beach chairs were a big plus. Only downside to this place was the strange smell each time we entered the condo. It disappeared once we were in for a while. Not sure if the smell can be helped as it may be related to how old the condo is? If someone is very sensitive to smell they may not like it. Regardless it was a minor annoyance and we would definitely stay again.

Owner's Response: Aloha Nguyen, Thank you for your review and for bringing to my attention the odor. My only wish is that you had told me this when you arrived. I live in close proximity to the studio, and I could have addressed this problem immediately. As you observed, the place is immaculate and I put a lot of care and attention to providing the best possible for my guests. Had you brought this to my attention it would have been resolved sooner, and I would not be reading about it in the review. You could have called me or the housekeeper. Both numbers are located on the guideline sheet on the kitchen counter. So sorry.

Did not want to leave, perfect place in the perfect location for a Hawaiian getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Overall: I would rent this property again in a second. Great price for what you get, which was A LOT. Great location. Great owner who is openminded and willing to work with you. I seriously felt like we won the lottery with this property. Read more below for specifics.

This property is located within the Lahaina Shores Resort, a lovely hotel with amenities that are available to you. These amenities include a lovely pool, jacuzzi, concierge, and great staff to greet you. In addition, there is a beach just feet from the back door of the hotel, which is really only open to the hotels guests (only a couple of people out there at a time).

The place itself is perfect for a Hawaiian vacation for two. Its location was in walking distance from Front Street, the downtown of Lahaina which provides access to the harbor (tours) and many stores and restaurants. Weather we wanted some shaved ice or a nice breakfast, we walked approximately 6 minutes.

The property itself has a large closet, large bathroom, and a comfortable bed. We were able to cook the majority of the nights due to the provided kitchen appliances (rice cooker, pans, pots, toaster, blender). There were also come boogie boards in the closet, and some floaties prior renters left behind to play with. It was such a great property, and it added to the overall experience knowing we had a safe and homey place to return to at the end of a long day.

I would strongly encourage that you book here, no regrets at all.

A PERFECT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5

We had the best experience renting from Carmen. The staff at the condominium were all great as well! A very cheerful staff. Plus, we were just a few steps to the sandy beach right outside of the building. The pool and hot tub were so clean and there is a definite pride of ownership there. Once leaving the property, we could walk to everything on Front street. Amazing restaurants (must go to Betty's next door for breakfast), shops and the best Luau right next door! The only thing I wish the condo would have had was a beach view but we were never there so that wasn't a priority for us. The cooling system was a perfect temp as well! The price was spot on perfect and we cannot wait to come back. We were sad the moment we left.....Thank you Carmen!

Lovely, charming property!

  • 5 of 5

Great studio, plenty of room, clean & well-equipped. Carmen was prompt with all communications.

Loved the charming, well-appointed building and the location was perfect to walk Lahaina. Easy bus close to get to Kaanapali beaches. If I come back to Maui, I'd happily stay here again!
